Given the relatively small size of Wichita State University's Ulrich Museum of Art, it may come as a surprise to some visitors that the works in its collection total more than 6,000.
Over the past 30 years, the Ulrich has amassed a modern and contemporary art collection that holds its own against any major museum in the country.
On Saturday, museum visitors will have the chance to view some of the highlights of the Ulrich collection at the opening reception for "Art of Our Time," which will be on view through Aug. 8.
